 Lorenzo Crippa



I am a PhD student from the Department of Government at the University of Essex (UK). Before joining the Department, I obtained a Master's degree in International Relations and Diplomatic Sciences (specialisation in International Political Economy) from the University of Bologna (IT), and a Bachelor degree in Philosophy (specialisation in Political Philosophy) from the University of Milan (IT). My main subject of research is the quantitative study of the multilateral cooperation to regulate corporate crime, in particular foreign bribery. I am particularly interested in how it affects relationships between states and multinational corporations in the debate on globalisation.
